Insidehoops: My main man Sonny Weems, formerly of the Toronto Raptors, will be continuing his career overseas as a member of Euroleague powerhouse CSKA Moscow.  Weems was Euroleague’s third-leading scorer last season, posting an average of 15 PPG as a member of Zalgiris Kaunas.  He’ll be replacing Andrei Kirilenko.

NJ.com: Deron Williams confirms my suspicions that the FIBA basketball is slippery and overinflated.  He also says the rims are stiff.  The game was invented in the USA, so I’ve never understood why international regulations don’t call for a Spalding and a peach basket.

Twitter: Dante Cunningham, a native of the south, has been traded from Memphis to Minnesota, where he fears that he’ll turn into a popsicle.  Personally, I’d be less fearful of the weather than I would be of my new practice responsibility: keeping Kevin Love off the glass.

Pro Basketball Talk: Andrei Kirilenko feels like “a young deer,” which means he’s signed a $20 million deal with the wrong pack of animals.  It was Milwaukee you were looking for, Andrei!  Milwaukee!

Fox Sports South: Josh Smith and new Hawks GM Danny Ferry have been sharing ideas.  I’d love to listen in on a basketball discussion in which Josh Smith shares his ideas.  I bet they’re all about jump shots, and most of them are airballs.

Clutch Fans: This was originally reported by the New York Daily News, so take it with a grain of salt, but Kevin McHale reportedly pitched a fit when the Rockets allowed Goran Dragic to walk.  Can’t say that I blame him.

Yahoo!: Adrian Wojnarowski reports on the collective desire of NBA owners to get their prized players out of the Olympics.  If you take Wojnarowski’s word for it, we’ll “never, ever” see a player such as LeBron James in the Olympics again.  We’ll be seeing him in the “World Cup Of Basketball” instead.

Charlotte Observer: LeBron James: “When asked about the baskets’ backgrounds at the Olympic basketball arena, where there is a relatively wide gap in the end zones between the fans and the court, James said: ”I don’t know; I’m not a shooter. You’ve got to ask one of the shooters. I drive and dunk the ball. (It) doesn’t bother me.”’  Well okay then.

NBA.COM: Suns owner Robert Sarver likens the successful management of an NBA basketball team to a game of tennis.  I didn’t know they could sell draft picks in tennis.

NBA247365.COM: In case you missed it, I posted an article about Jamaal Magloire yesterday evening.  I feel that the article (which is really a list) captures the very essence of this blog, and it’s one of my favorite submissions to date.  For this reason I am going to promote it until it receives a comment.  That is all.
